WHITE COUNCIL WILL WRECK HOBBIT

I believe that if The White Council is in The Hobbit Movie, it will wreck it. The Hobbit is (nearly) all about Bilbo. Keep it that way. What do fans think?

I say make a good movie that follows the book well, and if they could fit something in about the White Council great! We have to remember this is going to be two movies.

I agree with Odo entirely. They're making movies called The Hobbit, so in my opinion they should adapt the story of The Hobbit, not throw together two or more stories from the same time period. In other words, just make The Hobbit instead of The Prequel to PJ's LOTR. Please. :)

The problem though, Cbernui, is that if they put in something about the White Council they won't be following the book regardless of how many movies there are.

If the White Council is going to in anyway change the story I don't think it should be in the movie.

Well, I guess it depends on what you consider a change. Adding the White Council will not automatically change the details of the story told in the book, but it will change the overall story told in the films by introducing a parallel storyline to the main one of Bilbo.

There should not be any parallel stories told in the movie.

I suspected you'd be on side with this Eldorion. I also think you'd agree that The Hobbit has its own feel and atmosphere, quite different to LOTR with its parrallel storylines and many Protagonists. I really hate any thought of The Hobbit becoming a 'prelude" to LOTR (the book or movie) as such. It wasn't a 'prelude": LOTR was an afterthought (albeit a rather tasty one!) The tone of TH is very different and the film should reflect this. Bilbo knew nothing of 'larger" matters - nor should we (you know what I mean!!)

I'm glad you've seen reason, Cbernui.

"VOTE NO! TO PARRALEL STORYLINES!"

Odo

And yes, there's still plenty of story to make two movies without the White Council! (It might even be done properly leaving nothing out - Excelsior!)

However did you guess, Odo? :lol: I agree with you about The Hobbit NOT being a prequel. I'm not particularly optimistic though, largely for reasons set out in this thread.
